Of English Country Life Is a Most
HUNTING AS IT IS DONE THERE.
The Birds Carefullj Feared for a Great Daj
rOACHEES INTERRUPT THE INDUSTRY
J5BBE8POSDECi: OF THE DISPATCH.
Banbubt, England. July 25. From
any point of consideration the English
pheasant is the most splendid bird that
reaches the English market.
Somebody, perhaps an Irishman, has
called it the "the sacred Ibis of Great
Britain." It is certainly all but worshiped.
The idolatry is an expensive one; for it
surely costs England, Ireland and Scotland
more than 1,000,000 to rear, to shoot and
i o finally eat such pheasants as annually
come to the gun.
If the vast area of valuable inclosed land
comprised in gentlemen's seats and parked
demesnes of the nobility, which are almost
solely devoted to runs and coverts lor
pheasants, should be taken into account,
and anything like a fair rental lor these be
added to the actual current sums expended,
the outlay upon this one bird alone would
annually reach millions upon millions of
dollars, and be found to exceed all other
lorms of outlay by British sportsmen com
bined. Indeed the pheasant is an interesting
bird in all its relations to life upon the
great English estates in its extraordinary
personal beauty; as the immemorial worry
of keepers and prey of poachers; in its oc
cupying greater attention from titled sports
men than do all other came birds of Britain,
and, above all, from its superb and match
lets place among the delicacies ot the table.
Every one has heard how Sidney Smith,
aud he was no mean epicure, asserted that
he knew of no purely earthly joy equal to
roast pheasant with rich cravy, chipped
potatoes and bread sauce. For an Ameri
can's understanding, it may truly be said
that the pheasant is our turkey, partridge
and quail in one ample and delicious frame.
Th Cost of tta Fad.
The limitations of shooting in Great
Britain undoubtedly add much from the
sportsman standpoint to the deep British
interest at all times in these splendid birds.
It is almost inconceivable to an American
how universally the 'sportman" craze pre
vails in England, Ireland and Scotland, and
how every acre of land and rod of shore,
outside of and distinct from all other uses
to which it may be put, is sportman's prop
erly, yielding extraordinary returns in
rentals tor the "shooting" and "fishine;"
rights alone. On a lormer occasion I dem
onstrated that the exercise of these rights
and privileges annually cost British sports
men the enormous sum of 6,000,000 or
WU.uoo.uuu in American money.
This vast expenditure is almost wholly
confined to whatever pleasnre may be got
in poking about moors, other waste though
thoroughly guarded tracts and tenant farm
ers' fields for snipe, quail and grouse,
capercailzie and deer. Pheasants, then,
while they may e entually come to the
tables of the vulgar tradesmen and literary
folk, are really the game birds of the
British aristocracy, and of the landed
aristocracy at that. They are found
only within the grounds of gentle
mens' seats and lordly demesnes,
s-a e where as in pheasant farms, they are
exclusively bred to increas the numbers
upon the estates. All the conditions of
their existence in the first place, their
breeding, their increase and retention are
necessarily alone found within the walled
in parks of the country gentry and nobility.
All the sport found in their annual destruc
tion is so absolutely exclusive that they
can only reach the common mortals' table,
at lroin a crown to a guinea a. brace, by
war ot the ubiquitous poacher's net or after
"coming to the guns" of the rich, the titled
and the great.
Every British nobleman's estate and
every English, Irish or Scottish gentleman's
country seat is in point of fact to a greater
or less degree a pneasantry, and the in
crease and protection ot this one game bird
are paramount to all other duties or pleas
ures. From every accessible means of in
formation, I believe that fully 1,000.000
nheasants are annually slaughtered in the
United Kingdom. Of these over 100,000
reach the London market stalls alone; and
this number represents only those which
have legitimately come from the "battues"
or "shoots" in October, November and
early December; and do not take into ac
count the heavy annual drafts by poachers
upon the rich and well stocked preserves.
Royalty as a rheasant Fancier.
The Prince of "Wales is by no means first
amon the breeders, and yet on his estate of
Sandringham and the adjoining property of
Castle Bisingham, which he has leased for
sporting purposes, as many as from 7,000 to
S.000 pheasants are annually provided by
His Boyal Highness for his sportsmen
friends. In two or three of the dukeries,
and on other large estates as well, immense
pains end expense are given to insure abun
dant supplies of the bird of Colchis. The
killing of from 2,000 to 4,000 at one "bat
tue" has often been recorded, and it is well
known that 9,500 were shot during one sea
son at Elvedon, in Norfolk, which has an
area of 17,000 acres. There are other game
farms, as they are called, in other parts of
England, and there is at least one such huge
pheavantry in Scotland, on the Marquis of
Ailsa's estate in Ayrshire.
On all estates of average area the head
gamekeeper will be allowed a half dozen
keepers to assist him in breeding and
caring for the game, and in protecting it
from inroads ot poachers. Often the num
ber ot under keepers will be increased by
drawing, at certain seasons, upon the under
foresters; so that where from 2,000 to 4,000
pheasants may be required for the autum
nal guns of milord's sportsmen guests, with
the wives and children of the helpers who
mav live in cottages within the demesne
walls, a score of persons will be employed
in the breeding and caring for pheasants
upon one estate alone.
Usually these birds which have escaped
both the poacher's nets and the sportsmens'
guns are allowed to run wild during the
winter; care principally being taken to Keep
their-runs and coverts clear of too great ob
structions by Rnow, to have their haunts
occasionally provided with dry straw or
leaves, and to keep their drinking wells or
water troughs open and clear of refuse, and
that they are well led with oats and corn.
On some estates during October and No
vember a certain number are caught, taken
to the aviary or pheasantry, their wings
regularly clipped every two or three weeks,
and they are thus kept and led during the
winter to provide the required egg supply
during the spring months, the scarcity o"f
eggs being one of the most serious draw
backs in pheasant breeding.
Electricity Brought Into Play.
Usually, however, the old birds are not
"taken up" uutil the last of February.
Then they are systematically "starved" by
non-leedtng for about a week, when large
"figure 4" traps are set near their haunts.
Then trails of oats are scattered between.
The pheasants readily follow these to the
traps, which are sprnngby strings in the
hands of the keepers, any desired number
being thus easily secured.
These birds are taken to the aviaries
which the keepers, among whom I have
many good friends, insist on calling
"areas." These are simply large wooded
spaces in the demesne grounds, inclosed by
fences of wire netting, sometimes 12 feet
high. The wings of the birds are constant
ly clipped or they would escape; but breed
ers find the labor required less costly than a
wire netting covering for such necessarilv
large tracts. These aviaries are provided
with mock coverts of bark and bough, with
nesting places and watering trouglfs, while
some are" secured against vermin by curved
iron bases to the inclosing netting charged
with electricity, which causes death to all
rodents attempting an entrance.
The pheasants begin laying by April, and
they lay very much like the ordinary hen.
Each can be counted on to furnish, from 20
to 30 eggs. These are daily carefullv gath
ered not only from the nesU in the aviaries,
but lrom those of the unimprisoned birds.
The latter is not a difficult task for the
keepers; for it is a singular fact that not
withstanding the pheasants' wild nature
they nest most freely in shrub clumps along
the'edges of walks and drives. The keepers
tell me they love the sound and sense of com
panionshi , though themselves wonderfully
secretive and sly.
A Harvest for the Ponchars.
And here the element of poaching is
ridiculously observable. From April to
June pheasant eggs are worth from 4 to
5 per hundred, or from 20 to 25 cents each.
A regnlar scramble for them is begun, and
this season provides one of the richest of
the poacher's harvests. It is a well-known
fact that oneshalf of the pheasants' eggs ex
posed for sale by the shopkeepers are stolen.
Expert poachers know every haunt of the
pheasants upon the demesnes as well as the
keepers. They are often ahead of the
latter at the nests of the unimprisoned
birds. Xot only this, but keepers them
selves do not scruple to surreptitiously
dispose of milord's supply, or help them
selves from the nests on neighboring
However great may be the care in the
breeding of pheasants, not over one-half of
the chicks come safely to maturity. Then
tha preserves are ready for depletion by
poaching in its various forms. Not only do
the birds sutler in diminution from the pro
fessional poacher, but milord's pheasants
prove an irresistible temptation to every
tenant and cotter living round about the
demesnes as well as many whose interests
should make them their protectors; while
on many estates much of the poaching
attributed to genuine poachers is done by
the employes themselves.
Quito an Important Industry.
On great estates from 20 to 50 men are
regularly employed. There are the
"agent" and his clerks. The bailiff, who
looks after the home farm and cattle, and his
helpers. There are the head forester and
perhaps a dozen under foresters, all of
whose bird and wood-craft are quite equal
to those of the gamekeeper.and his several
underkeepers. There are a master sawver
and three or four men engaged in cutting
timber and posts from forest trees and re
pairing gates, walls and fences. The head
gardener has several assistants. There are
painters, glaziers, carpenters, etc., all of
whom are familiar with the castle and the
surrounding grounds. And on some
demesnes you will find a half dozen lodge'
keepers and their families. All of these
poorly paid folk love a pheasant after it has
come from the oven, not or grill as well
as do the aristocracy, and they all
know bow to get them without bothering
the yillage marketman.
Professional poaching is a far less danger
ous pursuit than it is usually considered.
During the shooting season all sorts of
village hangers-on are pressed into service
as "beaters" and to carry and fill the game
bags. It is an easy thing during the ex
citement to hide a generous portion of the
game at convenient points from which it is
taken undercover of night. Clamor and
fright also break up the rucks or coveys
into detached files of pheasants which re
treat as high as possible among the branches
of larch and fir, when the poachers can
easily take them from their roosts at night
by hand. Other methods are smudging or
smoking them into half insensibility and
knocking them from their perches with
clubs; corn kernels into which short bristles
are inserted are greedily devoured and the
birds run choking to the hedges to be easily
taken by hand; while an ingenious and suc
cessful device is to fit a gamecock with
artificial spurs, aud stealthily place him
alongside a covert, when the pugnacious
pheasant cock instantly responds to the
gamecock's crowing challenge, and three
or four brace of the valuable birds are
Pheasant shooting usually begins the lat
ter part of October and closes with the final
And This Is Called HuntlnC.
Notwithstanding high walls, gentleness of
keepers, and all possible preventives, many
pheasants leave the demesnes, seeking the
outer hedges and bog grasses, where they
fall a prey to the snares of tenants and guns
of the poachers. Therefore a few davs be
iore pheasant-shooting begins, all tne out
side help at the castle starts in a circle
miles from the demesne and concentrating
toward the same, shout and, "beat" with a
terrific bullabnloo, thus driving many
back within thei preserves. Then
milord and bis friends dressed as
for snipe-shooting on the moors
and provided each with two doubled-bar-reled,
breech-loading, center-fire fowling
pieces of No. 12 bore, a man for reloading
and another for carrying cartridges, begin
the slaughter. The sportsmen are stationed
in advance at the edges of open places. The
gamekeeper, who is a sort of master of cere
monies, brings his assistants or "beaters"
into line behind. Then thevmove forward,
perhaps ten yards apart, the keeper, who
knows every bush, hedge, copse or tree,
directing the "beaters" in every movement.
In an instant the preserve is a perfect bed
lem of velh and explosions. The men veil
"Hi-yi-i-il" as they "beat" thebnshes, call
ing, as the startled birds flash from copse to
copse, "Cock to the right!" "Cock above!"
"To the left, cock!" "Hi-yi i-i! cock,
cock, cock! right ahead, cock!" while
tbe death-dealing gnns answer with such
rapidity that they often get too warm to be
held in the sportmen's hands. This goes
on all day, with an hour for a lunch of
stew and beer at 2, when the "beaters" are
furnished a liberal amount of bread, cheese
and beer; and their assistants, who follow
the hnntcrs with carts and donkeys, by
night have often gathered up from 500 to
1,000 slaughtered Dirds. These are shipped
direct to London to dealers, who provide
hampers and tags and pay for the birds
lrom 4 to 6 shillings per brace.

AN UNACCOUNTABLE TSAGEDY.
A Wealthy Con pie Murdered In Broad Day
light In a Busy Ctty.
Fall Biveb, Mass., Aug. 4. Andrew
J. Borden and his wife were found dead at
their home at 11 o'clock this morning. Both
had been frightfully mutilated about the
head and face with an ax, cleaver or razor.
Mr. Borden lay on a sofa in a room on the
lower floor of the house. His head had been
cut and gashes from five to six inches long
were found on his face and neck. Mrs.
Borden was in her own chamber on the up
per floor, and the condition of her face and
head was the same as that of her husband.
No implements that could have been used
in the commission of the crime were found.
This leads to the belief that Mr. and Mrs.
Borden were murdered.
Mr. Borden was a wealthy real estate
owner and millman, and was seen on the
street an hour before he was'found dead. It
is said a servant, Bridget Sullivan, says she
went into the room to make some inquiry of
Mr. Borden about five minutes before Lizzie
Borden gave the alarm. He was then sit
ting on the sofa reading a newspaper. Mr.
Borden was on the streets and in several of
the banks as late as 10 o'clock.

NEWS FEOJI THE DERRICKS YESTERDAY
Notwithstanding the fact that no big
wells'have been finished up in the McDon
ald field for the last five or six days, the
estimated production of the field is still
kept at 20,000 barrels.
There are only four wells given in the
list of those making 20 barrels an hour,
and the aggregate hourly produc
tion ot these four wells is only
90 barrels, or 2,160 barrels a day. This
wonld leave 17,840 barrels to be produced
by the balance of the wells in the field,
which is considerably more than they were
credited with a couple of months ago, and
the notorious drop in the production of a
majority of those old wells cannot be ques
tioned. One of the wells dropped yesterday was
Greenlee & Font's Ko. 6 on the Marshall
farm, south of Noblcstown, which was re
ported In the causes the day before to be
making 35 barrels an hour.

farm, on the western horizon, was touched
up a little yesterday and brought up to 20
barrels an hour. This started off at 65 bar
rels an honr a couple of months ago.
In answer to a telegraphic inquiry the
men In charge or the gauges at McDonald
explained that tv a free use of nitro-glycer-lne

Unfavorable View ofSIstersvIIIe.
An operator and a machinery man, who
has been at Slstersvllle since early last
spring, was in Pittsburg yesterday and does
not give the roseate view of that region
which some people are fond of doing. "The
fact Is that the average wells down there do
not run over 60 or 75 barrels at most," he
said. "There are,of course. some good wells,
but these are the exception. Where tliev
report one that is doing a Qouple of hundred
barrels or more, there are half a dozen
others so light that it scarcely pays to pump

"There ii another point about the field
which has been misrepresented. It has fre
quently been givon out that the cost of drill

may get a well down for $4,000 if he has ex

feet and oil is found in the second sand,
which is pebbly and of a darker color than

NOTES BY W. BEATTIE, LIVERPOOL.
(a) A move played, in the earlier matches
with morn or less suocess. Of late years it
has been superseded by the now stereotyped
3-7. Scarcely any first-class player will now
follow the text in an Important game.
(b) This seems to be right enough, although
it would, perhaps, be better to keep backjx
move which enables white to obtain X side
(c) Orcutt could not have failed to get
rather the better end game if he had taken
the shot 14-18, etc. Doubtless he piefeired to
go in for a complete and decisive crusher,
overlooking the combination which present
ly turned the tables.
(d) Hefter now effected a neat win from
the following position:

VARIATION 4 T-ABT FXFTU.
the above game and four variations form
the trunks of the five parts of the new Cross
Book, lately compiled and published by
James P. Reed.Ko. 15 Clark street.Pittsbnrg.
Each of the five parts has nnmerous varia
tions. Pait 1 Commonly known as the 26-23 line,
and was a favorite with the late James
Smith, champion ot England: be played it in
the International team match between Eng
land and Scotland, and alfo In tho twentieth
game in his match with CF.Barker. Mr.Reed
gives 17 variations beside trunk, 11 black
wins, 1 white win, and 6 draws.
Part 2 Known as Choice Cross, and was
the ravorite line of play of the Scottish
players In the international team match,
and the game Mr. Molr won from Smith, the
English champion. Mr. Reed gives eight
variations besides trunk, showing 7 wins for
black and 2 drawn.
Part 3 Goes under the name of tne "Slip
Cross," and is reckoned weak for the black
side; trunk and 11 variations are given to
this line, showtng i black wlns4 white wins
and 4 draws.
Pait 4 This is considered the strongest
derense that white can adopt, and is the
line nenily always played. Trunk and 33
variations are given to this Interesting line,
showing B wins lor black against 12 wins for
white and 17 drawn.
PartB This is considered the strongest
for the black, and adopted in general by the
Amelican players In important-matches.
Mr. Reed gives trunk and 36 variations,
showing 15 wins for black, 6 wins for white,
nnd 15 games drawn, giving in all the parts
110 variations of play on this interesting
opening at the small cost of 15 oents, bring
ing it within the reach of every player de
sirous of gaining an Insight into this line of
play, that can be forced every time 11-15 Is
CHECKERS ON THE ISLE OF MAN.
For the following interesting history of
the game we are Indebted to the Weekly
Timet, of Manchester, England:
A correspondent who is touring in the Isle
of Man sends us a description ot bow he saw
drau 'hts played on the old pier at Douglas:
"It is now 25 years since I was last here, and
what a change. Then there were no rail
ways, no promenade nor landing stage, but
the old pier was muoh in use, and, as u mat
ter of course, native idlers and loungers
there did congregate at all houis of the day
in the hopes of getting an odd job either as
porter or dock laborer. Time hung heav
ily upon the hands ot these bronzed sons of
the sea, and in order to give pleasure to
some of the weary hours, they used to play
draughts day In and day out during
the season. For their board they
used the stone terrace of the
pier, and for 'men' black and white stones,
and many an hour have I watched some
strongly contested games .played in this
primitive fashion, with all the eagerness of
clubroom players. Well, after 25 years'
absence I betook myself to the old quarter,
and again I found a few of the old stagers at
the tame old game, and playing in the same
old fashion, and in the same old corners of
the pier. The boards are now weather worn,
and by much play and use the squares are
nearly obliterated, and deep circuitous in
dentations in the stone now tako their place,
'reminding one of the work of sand worms on
the shore. I inquired ol one of the old cod
gers: 'How long had the game been played
on the Island!' 'You must ask some one
older than me,' was his quick reply. Not a
bad answer, I thought."
THE WORLD'S CHAMPIONSHIP.
V. DUNNE'S CRITICISM OT C. T. BARKER.
In a long letter from C. F. Barker, the
American champion, published in the cur
lent issue 01 the American Checker Review,
he declines Wyllie's challenge to play him a
match of 100 games at Glasgow as "un
reasonable," but expresses his willingness
to meet Wyllle in a match of 20, 30 or 50 re
stricted games, stipulating for the match to
take place in America. Barker says he has
"honorably won" the title "Champion cf the
World," which ne affixes to his letter; but as
tho player (Reed) fiom whom he claims to
have won it never had any "honorable"
title to It, bnt only a very dishonorable and
shadowy pretension, it is hard to perceive
where either the honor of victory or the
glory of possession comes in. Wyille has
not yet lost his title, and Is acting within
his rights in reiusing to play the match in
America. Barker says W yllle is well aware
that there are several players in America
who can beat him in a match, and so thinks
discretion the better part of valor. It Is
possible (but not probable) that there are
seveial American playeis able to beat
Wyllle; but nevertheless the fact is patent
they aie all unwilling, not to say afraid, to
cross the ocean to engage the old veteran,
pieferrlng rather, like Chanticleer, the emi
nence of their own particular stronghold,
from which In safety they can hurl forth
their defiance "Cock-a-doodle-dol"
ANOTHER CHECKER WONDEB.
In the end of June quite a sensation was
created all over the country when It was an
nounced through our columns that Pitts
burg had given birth to a boy wonder, who
had never been beaten at the game of
checkers. They came from far and near to
see the prodigy, and it was commented on
by all our exchanges, and players, both old
and young, came to headquarteis to witness
the youthful champion, and all are satisfied
we may yet have another Reed. But in the
closiug days of July, In tho midst of the ex
treme heat, another youthful champion has
been heralded forth, but this time of the op
posite sex, located at 42 Cliff stieet. This
will cause Mrs. Will S. Andres to look to her
laurels as champion lady player of the
world, for this youthful rival posses
ses through her parents all the character
istics of a strong player. At this writing
we have not yet learned her name, and none
is prouder than tho father of this addition
to the city team.
